Adaire Byerly was a highly successful model but left it all behind to follow her passion in behavioural science.
From appearing in Vogue to spending hours every day studying at home, she spent years learning about why we act the way we do before starting her company Entertainment Mindframe.
Now she works helping those in the industry deal with the mental difficulties that often come along with working in these types of environments.
People are becoming more and more aware of the prevalence of mental health problems in our society, and Adaire is doing great work to help those that are struggling.
She tells me all about her journey across two very different careers, and what both have been like for her…
“You can become addicted to chasing your success and you believe that while you’re doing that you’re successful, when in reality you’re not. ” – Adaire Byerly
